Prince Harry may have only made it through his own royal wedding to Meghan Markle less than two weeks ago, but the newlywed prince already has another wedding ceremony on his mind. Hello! magazine reported on an Evening Standard scoop that Harry will stand at the altar again later this summer, this time as the best man at childhood friend Charlie van Straubenzee's wedding to filmmaker Daisy Jenks.

Prince Harry and Charlie reportedly became friends as boys at the Ludgrove School in Berkshire, and the van Straubenzee family has been close to the royal family ever since. Charlie's older brother Thomas is a particularly close friend of Prince William and is even the godfather to Princess Charlotte. It's believed that both brothers were ushers at Harry's recent royal wedding in May.

The Sunday Times also reported that Charlie joined Prince William for a toast during the evening reception at Frogmore House in which he teased Harry about their days in prep school, specifically about a time when Harry was the school's dorm monitor. "All I wanted was a cuddle from my mummy," he reportedly told the crowd, but "instead, Harry nicked my teddy bear and chucked it out on to the roof. Ladies and gentlemen, I ask you, how can you put someone in charge of a dorm when that someone is worse behaved than the whole dorm combined?"

Charlie's August wedding in Surrey will be only one of two weddings Prince Harry and his new wife, the Duchess of Sussex, will be attending this year. Come October, the royal family will celebrate another royal wedding, this time of Princess Eugenie to Jack Brooksbank on October 12. Hopefully, they haven't taken down all of the decorations from Harry's wedding, as Eugenie's will also be held at St. George's Chapel.
